A medieval Spanish Muslim visits Makkah, Madinah, Egypt, Cities of the Middle East and Sicily

#Written more than eight hundred years ago and now translated into English. This is the first hand account of a wise and scholarly Spanish Muslim's pilgrimage to Makkah and Madinah, the two holy cities of Islam, and his travels to Baghdad, the city of the Caliphs, to the first onslaught of Salah al-din. Greatly detailed is his journey through Egypt and the many towns and villages to the Hijaz, Arabia and beyond. A predecessor to Ibn Batuta.

Translated by Ronald Broadhurst.
